Overview
For over 50 years, Hill House has run quality athletics programs for children in the Boston area. Starting in September, 2018, Hill House hosted the inaugural Boston NFL Flag Football League, an officially licensed NFL Flag program. Flag Football is a non-contact version of football, allowing for skill development and fun. All teams and leagues are co-ed and take place on Sunday mornings in Boston from September-November. The league is open to children city-wide and we've welcomed teams and players from all neighborhoods of Boston. Scholarships are available for players and families in need!

What to expect
All players will be placed on a team and receive a reversible NFL team branded jersey and an NFL Flag belt. The season will run the first Sunday after Labor Day through the start of November and teams will have a chance to practice together and compete in games each week. Sneakers or cleats can be worn as well as your team jersey and belt each week. For our Junior, Senior, and Pro leagues staff or volunteer coaches will lead teams through a regular season schedule of games that ends with a fun and competitive playoff tournament to find our champion! Here's a fun snapshot of what our playoffs have looked like in years past.

Here's a breakdown of our upcoming Fall 2024 Season for all competitive leagues (Junior, Senior, Pro):

  • Training Camp/League Combine Session- 9/08 - (60 minute session)
  •  Regular Season Game Sessions- 9/15, 9/22, 9/29, Skips Indigenous Peoples' Day Weekend, 10/13, 10/20, 10/27

Registration and Format Changes established in 2022
For all friend requests, going forward, we ask that these be limited to 1-2 friends max. Ultimately we will use our best judgement to separate players into equal teams to help ensure fun competitive balance for our leagues consistent with other Hill House programming. The first week will serve as our own NFL combine to work on basic skills for everyone, and then the second week we will separate everyone into their official teams to play preseason games and begin our season.
